GAME 7 RECAP ATTACK:
GAME 1 PREVIEW ATTACK:
ARE THE KINGS IN THE NEXT ROUND?:
A lot of reporters are talking about how evenly matched the LA Kings and Anaheim Ducks are. But most of them failed to identify the one glaring weakness between these two teams...
... the Ducks awful Twitter Account.
#PaintItOrange is by far one of the worst Social Media Team Slogans since the now-eliminated Colorado Avalanche introduced #WhyNotUs? And the worst part of all... the Anaheim Ducks have to use the #PaintItOrange hashtag to remind fans not to make a bunch of money selling their tickets to LA Kings fans.
More like #InTheBlack, am I right?
And the Ducks aren't even the first people to use this hashtag.
They aren't even the 1st hockey team to use that hashtag.
Since the Anaheim Ducks seem to be really committed to #PaintItOrange... we thought we'd look at some of the other things that are painted orange.
A traffic cone being painted orange makes perfect sense when it comes to the Anaheim Ducks. Mainly because it could provide better defense than Bryan Allen does.
Jack-O'-Lanterns are most prevalent in late October before they regress into mold that you have to eliminate. The Anaheim Ducks are also most prevalent in late October... before they regress into a team that will be eliminated.
